Dwight Trible

Dwight Trible, an icon on the quiet side of music, is a retrospective in waiting. This Los Angeles native is not a newcomer to music. He has collaborated with many musicians, including Charles Lloyd and Bobby Hutcherson. He is the singer with the Pharaoh Sands Quartet, and also serves as the vocal director of the Horace Tapscott Pan Afrikan Peoples Arkestra. This Los Angeles institution has a rich history that spans forty years. It is active in the Black community of Los Angeles since the Watts Uprising. Dwight, like his mentors, isn’t content to entertain, but he’s a talented performer. His music is used to bring people together, bridge the gap between races and heal the human spirit. Numerous awards have been given to him for his humanitarian work. Carlos Nino, who is best known as the Ammoncontact half, invited Trible to his radio show a few years back and a friendship and musical journey began. Trible says, “You have to be careful about what you say to Carlos because he makes things happen!” Nino was inspired by a chance comment about making a hip-hop record and began the journey that led to “Love Is The Answer”. The album will be released by Ninja Tune July 11, 2005. This record is unfashionably devoid of cynicism and a record that truly believes “love is all there is to it”. These inter-generational collaborations can produce beauty, time and effort that is unparalleled. http://ninjatune.net
